What is my tax household size?

Your tax household size affects the amount of your health insurance premium tax credit.

Your tax household includes all the individuals on your tax return: the tax filer, the tax filer’s spouse (if married filing jointly), and any dependents.

Note: If someone claims you as a tax dependent, you count as part of their household, not your own.

Tax household of one

If no one claims you as a tax dependent, you are not legally married, and you have no tax dependents, your tax household size is one.

Tax household of two or more

If you’re not a household of one, include your spouse (if you’re married and filing jointly) and your tax dependents.[1]
